Hi guys I have been keeping and breeding reptiles and amphibians in outdoor vivarium for the past few years with great success. When I started there was very little information available on the internet so I set up the outdoor vivaria forum. we now have a comunity of experienced outdoor herpers with a multitude of information on the forums. If you are interested in starting an outdoor vivarium or are very experienced in the field we would would love to hear from you and about about your herps.

The first thing I learned when I visited your forum is that a Mom lost 46 lbs following one rule. Cheeky :p.

I´ve visited your forum in the past, it has some lovely photos and outdoor vivaria ideas. However, sadly, the traffic on the caudate sections is...well.....dead.

Yes it has died off a bit thats why I am hoping to get some more people interested. I know that there are still people visiting the forum as well as a lot of the reptile keepers on there also have caudates, so feel free to post and Im sure they will answer you. There is a wealth of knowledge on there also that I hope people hoping to set up outdoors will be able to draw from.

Re: Weight loss unfortunately that has nothing to do with me! Thats the price that must be paid for a free forum!

Those vivariums are awesome..but I only have 1 question....








How do I lose the 46 lbs!?!?

Youll have to ask John Im afraid I didnt visit those sites!

Very sorry to hear that that is all John learned from a very informative forum! The only one of its kind with an absolute wealth of knowledge, photographs and design around the subject of outdoor vivaria.

He didn't say that's all he learned...he said that's the FIRST thing he learned...which makes me believe he must have learned at least 1 other thing.

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much

  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add

    Hello I'm wondering if fridging axolotl is necessary when giving it a salt bath? My fridge is unpredictable it just changes from freezing temperature to melting by itself. And driving me crazy. So I would not be keen to put my axie in these because of the sudden temperature changes it may experience. Can I leave him in a clean dechlorinated water tub in some of the room? Would I then need to refrigerate the salt water ? Or would I just keep it in a same room temperature?! I have everything ready for him to get a salt bath but just wanted to check about this fridging before I do ( waited for approval to join the forum:)
